Overview

Cheating Monkeys and Citizen Bees: The Nature of Cooperation in Animals and Humans / Edition 1

Here biologist Lee Dugatkin outlines four paths to cooperation shared by humans & other animals: family dynamics, reciprocal transactions (or "tit for tat"), so-called selfish teamwork, & group altruism. From the award-winning author of Cooperation Among Animals, this book probes the mystery of cooperation in nature and provides a fresh perspective on the meaning of animal social behaviour for human relationships at work and at play.
